Great location to visit Seattle. Tour buses come to hotel as well as Shuttle Express and the hotel
Has a shuttle of their own and will gladly take you to 3 drop off points. By the end of your stay you will navigate the city via walking. Hotel staff is attentive and helpful. The breakfast crew does a wonderful job and very friendly. Hot coffee and tea always available. Rooms are spacious just need a furniture update for living room and mattresses. They even have washer and dryer available to use with free soap just buy dryer sheets.

Room Tip: We were right on I 5 side and heard nothing....great views of the city

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days. I needed a taxi twice and both times I gave the front desk staff ample notice about needing a taxi but they could not get a taxi to arrive on time or arrive at all. In one instance when the taxi did not show up I almost missed a ferry on which I was scheduled and I would have had to wait a day for the next ferry.

One of the hotel managers said they had 'problems' getting taxi's to come to the hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel did not share that with me until it was too late. Otherwise I would have handled my transportation needs myself and not rely on the hotel.

My suggestion is not to rely on the hotel for transportation, make your own arrangements.

Hello James D.! Please accept my apology for the spotty taxi service. We do, at times, struggle to get cabs to our hotel during peak times. We should have done a better job in communicating with you and offered other options. I really do appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again.

Recently stayed here while BF attended conference. Great experience. Front desk staff are EXCELLENT, super helpful and friendly( Ben & Eric!)! Helped me find running routes in the city, gave excellent advice for restaurants, arranged shuttle transport. Hotel is clean, yummy breakfast in the AM! Extra bonus- there is a 24 hour fitness across the street and hotel guests are able to use facility.

Great location, good breakfast and dining options, close to downtown locations. Easy walking distances and close to transit. Fine service and comfortable accommodations. A totally contained location for a rainy evening too.

Just spent 3 nights as an attendee to a convention. More affordable than the conference hotels and a short 10 -12 minute walk from the convention center. Some of the reviews I read prior to booking expressed concern about the neighborhood. During daylight and early evening hours, felt totally safe. For those concerned, they have a complimentary shuttle which runs until 9PM so you can arrange to be picked up/dropped off in a few strategic locations. The evening I was out very late in the "downtown" area, it was a quick $5 cab ride - an investment well worth the savings from the nightly rate. Comfortable room, nice staff and decent breakfast (complimentary)

Surprised by the complimentary shuttle, takes you to the space needle, Pikes market every hour until 9 pm. Usual hot hotel breakfast, 24/7 coffee in the lobby. Stayed 2 nights, in this clean, friendly staffed hotel. They have an arrangement with 24 hour fitness, across the street, you can use their gym with your DL & room key. While it's not in the exact middle of things, the shuttle gets you there, taxis are plentiful, and the amenities Springhill offers makes up for it.

Room Tip: It's an all suite hotel
